Wes Cobb and Air Force bowled over TJ Raimatuia and Hawaii en route to a 21-7 victory Friday night at the Air Force Academy to become bowl eligible for the sixth consecutive season.

AIR FORCE ACADEMY Wes Cobb scored twice on short runs, and Cody Getz rushed for 125 yards as Air Force beat Hawaii 21-7 on Friday night to become bowl eligible.

The Falcons (6-5, 5-2 Mountain West) are headed to a postseason game for the sixth consecutive season under coach Troy Calhoun. The team accepted a bid to the Armed Forces Bowl after the game.

Air Force didnt even attempt a pass all night, relying on a ground game thats ranked second in the country. The Falcons finished with 338 yards rushing.

Getz had another big night, eclipsing the 100-yard mark for the sixth time this season. The diminutive running back had a 5-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter to break a 7-7 tie with the Warriors.
